Rich regular frequency patterns were found in the Fourier spectra of low-amplitude Delta Scuti stars observed by CoRoT satellite. The CoRoT observations are, however, influenced by the disturbing effect of the SAA. The effect is marginal for high amplitude variable stars but it could be dangerous in the case of low amplitude variables, especially if the frequency range of the intrinsic variation overlaps the instrumental frequencies. Systematic tests were carried out both on synthetic and real data. Our aim was to determine a limit amplitude above which we were sure that the frequency pattern belonged to the stars.
